PLA."WmIN PLANS FOR FLO3IDA 01. OECHAEDS


In 71oric.a, as in many other parts of the country, fruits are not
used as largely as they should be in the diet of the country popula-
tion. Moreover, they are never likely to be and probably they will be
left out of the diet entirely unless they are grown at home. Too often
fruit tree plantings are very limited or absent entirely from the eur-
roun.ings of rural homes. The assertion is ventured that in many sec-
tions a house to house census will establish the feat that there is not
a single fruit plant on the farm, or at best only a vine or a tree or
two. Given in those areas where certain fruits are produced in large a-
mounts the ,reat variety of other fruits that might be grown is com-
pletely absent. The attention given to commercial production has been
so complete as to eclipse everything else.

Perhaps nowhere in the country can a greater variety of fruits be
procruced than in Florida. any of them are not important commercially
and they never will be, but as home fruits they are valuable and the
list of kinds and varieties permits of great choice. Their presence on
the farm will widqn the diet, make for better health and add greatly to
the joy and economy of living. Further than this, it is not the intemw
tion to discuss the value of fruit in the home. Certain phases of this
suoject are covered in Bulletin No. 227 and a full discussion of kinds
and varieties of many un~usal fruits is given in Bulletin 223 of the
Florsda Agricultural Iperiment Station. There are other blletins from
the Station on other fruits, Those interested in fruits aOVld have
copies of them.

fruit trees and shrubs have other values on the farm. What is
lovelier than a pineapple pear in full bloom, the lush new growth of a
mango, an orange hung with golden fruit, the dense green of a Oattleq
guava, the outline of a peoan against the alty, or the delightful perfume
of a loquat in full bloom? Then why not give fruit trees a place in the
planting of the home grounds? Why should they not, if other space is
lacking, give to the house that shade and beauty so often lacking in
home surroundings?

It is true, however, that fruit can begrown best in a plot of ground
given over to fruit trees and plants alone. With this in mind three
plans have been made, ene for north and west, one for central and one for
south Florida. These plans should be regarded as suggestive only. Inai-
vidual tastes must be considered in the selection of kinds and varieties
and so certain ones will be left out -or reduced in number and others itn
creased to take their place. An acre iay be too much, The space can be
reduced. Hot all sorts are adapted to a particular piece of ground or
to a certain locality, and the results from their planting may be too un-
certain. If, for one reason or another, some are not desirable, they can
be omitted, but the plans giwVs will serve as a wor*ins basis for a home
frLit orchard which, when planted and oared for as it should be, may be-
come the most interesting and most valuable acre on a Florida farm.

Care this orchard Mst have. It a~st be cultivated and fertilized.
There mst be pruning, sparttg, dusting and saitat4on and there mnst
be kneoe4e of why and how and when to do these things. If left to It.
self, the effort will come to naght. Inevitably insects and diseases
will benefit, the owner or planter thereof will not.
